ABSTRACT

How Best to Improve Bus Safety on Our Nation's Highways: Hearing Before the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, House of Representatives, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, First Session, June 13, 2011   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the opening statement of John Mica: "We had a horrible accident on March of 2011 on the New Jersey Turnpike, we had another horrendous accident in New York with 15 fatalities, injuries in these incidents. We have had, again, unfortunately, in North Carolina, another horrible accident in the Greensboro, North Carolina, area where four passengers were killed and 53 others injured. So, the purpose of the hearing is to look at our current laws, our regulations, and the administration, those provisions that we currently have in statute or in rules, and make certain that we have the very best measures in the bill that we are drafting. We have taken ideas from both sides of the aisle in our preliminary work, and hopefully we will have some additional input today because, again, one fatality is far too many." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Mica, Anne S. Ferro, David Palmer, Peter Pantuso, Victor S. Parra, and Jacqueline S. Gillan.
